Even though I am recovered and off meds for over a year, I still have to be monitored by a Cardiologist and weigh myself everyday. A lot of the symptoms can be passed off as normal pregnancy complaints, or just other pregnancy related problems like pre-eclampsia.
Symptoms usually include one or more of the following: orthopnea (difficulty breathing while lying flat), dyspnea (shortness of breath on exertion), pitting edema (swelling), cough, frequent night-time urination, excessive weight gain during the last month of pregnancy (two to four or more pounds per week), palpitations (sensation of racing heart-rate, skipping beats, long pauses between beats, or fluttering), and chest pain.
